The sheikh (Amr Waked) believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert. Willing to spare no expense, his representative (Blunt) involves Britain's leading fisheries expert (McGregor) who thinks the project both absurd and unachievable. But when the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a 'good will' story, the team rise to the challenge, embarking on a journey of faith, love and fish.
